Hello,

I have the following stored procedure:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CREATE PROCEDURE [spSearchContent]
      (@userid      [uniqueidentifier],
       @search      [nText])
AS
SELECT     dbo.User_Loc_Relation.user_id, dbo.User_Loc_Relation.location_id, dbo.Content.title_id, dbo.Content.title, dbo.Content.content
FROM         dbo.Content INNER JOIN
                      dbo.User_Loc_Relation ON dbo.Content.location_id = dbo.User_Loc_Relation.location_id
WHERE
       dbo.Content.content LIKE '%' + @search + '%'
GO
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But it does not seem to like the WHERE clause.  Where am I going wrong?

Thanks in advance

LIKE only works with char, nchar, varchar, and nvarchar datatypes.
